Hunt begins for best young Welsh butcher
The Cambrian Training Company, alongside Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC), has announced the annual search is on for the best young Welsh butcher.
After winning last year’s title Matthew Edwards, 23, who works for S A Vaughan Family Butchers, Penyffordd went on to compete for Great Britain European skills competition in Switzerland in September.
Cambrian Training Company and HCC hope Edwards’ international success will inspire fellow young butchers to enter the competition. Cambrian Training Company’s managing director Arwyn Watkins said: “Every year, we identify new talent in this competition as young butchers raise the bar with their high-level skills, which helps to promote butchery as an exciting and rewarding career.
“Our ultimate aim is to develop world-class skills in Wales, so that our young butchers can compete with the best at international level.”
Hopefuls have until 10 November 2014 to enter the competition and, alongside the entry form, must supply a written explanation, not exceeding 250 words, supported by photographs, why adding value to their Welsh meat product range with their butchery skills is important and will attract new and existing customers.
Cambrian Training Company reported four finalists will be chosen to demonstrate their skills at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Builth Wells on 2 December 2014.
Application forms, which can be downloaded at www.cambriantraining.com, must be returned to Chris Jones either by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Cambrian Training Company, The Offices @ Coed-y-Dinas, Welshpool, Powys SY21 8RP.
